Colorado’s Marijuana Enforcement Division requires those who hold licenses in the state and their stakeholders to report to METRC as their primary method of tracking. The state requires cannabis to be traced from seed to sale, which requires operators to jump through hoops to prove they’re being compliant.
By 2017, Colorado had passed the $1 billion mark in revenue, just six years after recreational cannabis was made legal in the state. Colorado is so serious about making the most of their marijuana tax revenue that their Department of Public Health and Environment released an official guide to the best management practices for cultivating cannabis.
With this dedication to legitimizing the industry has come the responsibility of keeping painstakingly detailed records. If you can’t prove you’re doing everything by the book, with products that have been tracked by the state throughout every stage, you could soon be out of business.
Although you are required to use METRC as your primary tracking method, using Yobi’s platform is a must if you want to make compliance simple. You can take the headaches out of your reporting by letting Yobi’s software do the job for you.
It is not uncommon for a licensed operation to have a couple of employees solely dedicated to reporting data to METRC. Keeping paper records is a huge task, and so is staying on top of the changing regulations. Yobi seed-to-sale software automatically updates when the laws change, and it will allow you to input data that will then be directly sent to METRC in real-time.
